Shocking “Meat Is Murder” Protest by PETA

PETA (People for the Ethic Treatment of Animals) staged some pretty original protests in the past, but its most recent, “Meat Is Murder” was a bit on the shocking size. The event took place July 27th, in Times Square, New York.

PETA demonstrators  acted like packed pieces of meat, the kind you see in most every supermarket, only a lot bloodier. The human meat packs were branded with stickers that read ‘Billions of Animals Are Abused and Violently Killed Because You Eat Meat’. Now doesn’t that make you feel guilty?

I’ll confess I was moved by a few of these protests, but this particular one just managed to gross me out. I think PETA would be much wiser to stop condemning everyone who eats meat, and just militate for the ethical treatment of animals raised for slaughter, before they are sacrificed. To hope everyone will just stop eating meat is just unrealistic, and quite frankly their zero-policy attitude is doing more harm than good.

Let me know if these trays of packed human meat convinced you to stop eating meat. They just made me hungry.

    Thanks. I feel like a steak now.

    Since we already eat human flesh, I see no reason to stop now. I would, however, prefer the convenience of purchasing my humans pre-packaged.

    Wow…is there nothing PETA won’t do? You know at some point they’re going to stage another stunt like this only it will be kids in the packages. PETA should rethink their tactics. Their current ones have little (if any) affect on us meat eaters.

    Suddenly I find myself wanting a nice piece of veal.

  • Darzolo Posted on July 31, 2010

    Mmmmm I want the one in the middle, just juicy enough. lolololol

    ps even if we stop eating meat it’ll still be cut and sold, sooo doesn’t matter. ALSO PETA PEOPLE STOP LECTURING ME AT WORK ITS A PET STORE FOR GODS SAKE NO ONES EATING THE DANG PETS….

    well aside from lizards and such

    … heheheh >;)

    Not shocked at all. Just bewildered by all the blood around the meat. I’ve never seen it packaged that way, and have never purchased any prepared that way. Usually, the slaughterhouse drains all the blood away before slicking and packaging.

    I suggest PETA find a different shop to buy their meat at.

    These ignorant comments are pretty sickening. Even if it’s for a joke, I cant believe how narrow-minded and disrespectful people can be. Especially the person making the comment about the veal, i.e. effectively the flesh of a baby, and there’s a reason it’s been banned in most of the European Union.
    I do agree that PETA go to drastic advertising measures at times, but that’s their campaign method- the attempt to shock. In the same way that NSPCC or Oxfam campaigns do.

    I´m bored of things like these. ‘Billions of Animals Are Abused and Violently Killed Because You Eat Meat’ …? Lol, and if I was the last meat eating person on earth they would continue to kill the next billion? Wanna see that. I´m still hungry.

    The only really good reason for someone´s being vegetarian ore vegan I´ve ever heared is: “Because I hate plants.” XD

    But I apologize for my English, it´s not my native language. I´m hopeful that there will be NO “killing a billion English-speakers” now.
